Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The commitment of individual Christians to work for social and political change should be recognized as a fully legitimate form of Christian discipleship.

Views

Language of a derogatory nature (with regard to race, nationality, ethnic background, gender, sexuality, and physical differences) does not reflect value of one another and contradicts the Christian teaching.
